BTW Spinfit makes a double flange, I discovered, and it is perfect for the ZS5.
Yeah, but the sound is not better than foam tips plus you loose on the comfort and also, there is more trouble with inserting them. I believe in double flange ear tips, just need to find the perfect IEM to pair it with so that the sound is actually the best possible out of that IEM - additional trouble would be worth it.

Slightly off topic as this is about Final Audio from Japan, their tips are pure perfection. Somehow soft yet they remain in shape more than enough to stay nicely put plus isolation is beyond amazing. I think they are similar to Sony tips, at least they look like they are with small flat part on top. I wish I could find them for a normal price, they get quite expensive to import.

Comply kills treble and they wear out fast....+1 to Starlines, they are very good

is the **** AK Musicmaker Nine Tail any good?
Easy isn't allowed to be talked about on here, he is a banned seller...on that note, filters annoy me a bit and the shape looks very odd but I'm a MM fan and I really want them but don't have the cojones or need to make the purchase though

For anyone interested in the horribly named BGVP SGZ-DN1, here are my thoughts. Overall a solid, if not slightly underwhelming budget hybrid. I like it, but I don't love it.

I ordered the ninetail and just was notified that it was delivered today. I won't be able to listen to them until September 1st, as I'm away on business until then. I will post impressions after spending some time with them.

I'm right there with you. Like them so much I bought a stockpile of extras (well, of they older grey ones).

Same here. I love the new black Starlines.

I can't wait for KZ to start selling them separately. I too have a pile of the grey ones, which I like as well. But the black ones are soft and supple once broken in.

I also love the tips included with the Magaosi K3 Pro. The thickest, beefiest tips I've ever seen. And made from TRUE medical-grade silicone. I wish they were available to buy separately.

Unfortunately that seller is banned on HF, so I would check google, youtube, etc to see if there are any reviews anywhere else :0(

I can't tell if those are the original grey or the new black.

I am comparing both in my hand right now, and the color can be difficult to tell apart in certain light. When looking at the photos on that Aliexpress page, I can't tell for certain if it's the black or grey ones. My laptop screen isn't reliable enough.

I have about 10-12 full sets of grey ones, so it would suck if these turned out to be more greys.
